How did you decide on your GLL gown and accessories?  

Riley actually showed me a photo of the Hollie as he came across it on Instagram a few years ago. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the dress I was going to wear when I got married one day! It was everything I ever dreamt of. Riley proposed in April 2016, and a month later the Hollie was discontinued. I booked an appointment straight away. At first I was undecided whether the Hollie suited me. I had to decide that night as there were only a couple of dresses left! I went with my gut feeling and bought the Hollie. It was the best decision I have ever made! The bridesmaid’s tops (The Everyday Crop) went perfectly with the Hollie. And the ‘Love Set’ was a gift from my beautiful bridesmaids.

 

Describe your look in three words…

Simple, Relaxed, Beachy.

 

How did he propose?

Riley proposed at our favourite place in the world, Noosa National Park. He had organized a picnic for that day and proposed in a little pocket along the National Park walk. He asked me if I wanted to ‘feel the water’, dropped on one knee and popped the question.

What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?

Our goal for the wedding was for it to resemble us and our personalities. The most important aspect to me was for everyone to have a good time and to make sure I cherished every moment!

 

The funniest moments on the day were…

The funniest moments on the day were definitely at the reception. The speeches and the dancing.. We played our favourite songs and crowd surfed all night!

 

What was the most stressful part to planning?

We had a year to plan our wedding which was a perfect amount of time to get everything sorted so there wasn’t anything in particular that was stressful.
